Why Not Johnny Football, Houston?

 
Posted May 9th, 2014 @ 1:19pm

The Texans played it "safe" with their selection of Jadeveon Clowney (quotation marks because there's no such thing as a sure thing in the Draft).  But I cannot understand why some fans say it was the "smart" pick.

In a state dominated by the Cowboys, the Texans had their chance to change the demographics.  They could have done it by picking a quarterback for their team that NEEDED a quarterback.  Especially if that QB is Manziel.  So is that "smart?"

What kind of impact does Johnny Football have?  From ESPN:

Browns team president Alec Scheiner told ESPN.com on Friday that, in the time since Manziel was selected, the team sold more than 2,000 season tickets.

2000! And that's in a state with no Aggies fans.

Oh well.  Back to second banana and game-ending blackouts on KENS5.
